The Adventures of Jessie and Rocky Rockstar
by Donna-Leigh Perfect
Published by Ocean Reeve Publishing
I suggest it would be unusual to find a child who doesn’t at one time, or another yearn for a pet.
And nowadays it would be rare not to find a book that reflects exactly what an adult wants to say to a child on any subject.
The Adventures of Jessie and Rocky Rockstar – Puppy Rescue is the first in a series of books that explores the relationship between the author’s child Jessie and their rescue dog, Rocky. Donna-Leigh Perfect gives an insight into the ardent desire of a child for a puppy of her own. Couple that with the accidental encounter between Jessie’s stepdad and a puppy that needs a family like Jessie’s and this writer has found a winning combination.
It is a book that demonstrates the care of a family for a loved pet and their consideration for the feelings of each other.
Children who long for a pet or who love the pets they have will relate to this in a heartbeat. It is a book they’ll read over and over.
I love the play with words in the name – of the book and the dog. You’ll have to read it to see what I see.
With bright illustrations and beautifully produced to the standard we can expect from Ocean Reeve Publishing, this is a delightful gift for a child.
